This 1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria is a 2004 AACA National Senior First Prize Award winner that has been painstakingly restored to its top of the Ford line status.
From top to bottom, the body of this car is as straight as when it rolled out of Fords San Jose California factory. Dressed in its original Ford code KE Buckskin Brown and Snowshoe White, the cars paint is restored to better than factory condition and features an excellent shine with no major flaws or damage. All of the chrome and trim has been restored to like new condition to further enhance the feeling of luxury. The front and rear curved bumpers feature a liquid shine and include factory front and rear bumper guards. The concave grille aligns perfectly with the stainless trim on the edge of the hood and displays the cars 2004 AACA Senior Award plaque. New marker lights combine with the Crown Victoria exclusive browed headlights to preview the stacked light designs of the 1960s. The now famous 'Fairlane strip' flows from the top of the front fenders down the side of the car and hits the tail lights mid fender. Tinted glass that is in excellent shape all around is accented by the Crown Victoria exclusive chrome 'basket handle' roof piece and stainless window trim.
A correct "Power Pack" equipped 272 Y-block V8 sits below a 4 barrel carburetor and a factory correct air cleaner housing that is complete with a service instructions decal. A correct intake manifold sandwiched between Ford V8 decaled correct valve covers is painted orange to match the block. Mounted on top of that intake is a correct gloss black coil that runs power to a correct points distributor. To the right of the motor, Ford's first year factory option air conditioning system is painted gloss black and stamped with correct decals. In front of the engine a gloss black generator and pulley mounted 3 blade cooling fan sit right behind a correct gloss black radiator. On the left side of the motor, neatly ran stainless fuel lines complement a silver brake reservoir and silver factory optioned power steering reservoir. The car even features a correct "See Clear" windshield washer fluid bag and a final approval Ford inspection stamp.
Under the car, the floors are solid with no signs of rust and the frame is straight without any indication of damage with all the parts being functional and well-maintained. The satin black frame is bolted to a body color floorpan with Stainless fasteners and features an A-arm factory suspension up front complete with coil springs and drum brakes. Behind the orange oil pan sits the hydraulic Ford -O-Matic 3-speed transmission that sends power to a fresh satin black driveshaft and axle. The Exhaust system features a set of aggressive glasspack-style mufflers and stainless turn downs at the rear of the car for a gnarly burble. Keeping the car to the pavement is a set of wide whitewall G78-15 Coker Classic radials on the original color-matched Fairlane 15 inch steel wheels with gorgeous full wheel covers that feature highly detailed ford logos on a red inlay.
Inside this classy and comfortable interior, the two tone seats have been excellently restored and likely look and feel better than the day they came from the factory. A new headliner is tight across the roof and features the bottom side of the Crown Victoria 'basket handle'. In front of you, a perfectly restored dash houses a final production year 120mph swept speedometer above fuel and temperature gauges, warning lights and a gear selector window. In the center of the dash you'll find a clock, controls for Fords new for 1955 Ford Matic Aire System air conditioning and a unique AM radio. Great looking door panels flow back from the dash and house chrome handles for the door and window. The steering wheel, complete with chrome horn ring, is absolutely gorgeous and would give way to Fords first dished wheel for the sake of safety in 1956. New carpet flows throughout the interior to tie everything together and complete the look.
This is an exceptionally clean '55 Fairlane that has been restored to a high level of detail and carefully maintained. Call now

1955 Ford Being built and Tested
The Ford line of cars gained a new body for 1955 to keep up with surging Chevrolet, although it remained similar to the 1952 Ford underneath. The Mileage Maker 6 was bumped up to 223 CID (3.7 L) for 120 hp (89 kW) and the new-for-1954 Y-block V8 was now offered in two sizes: Standard Fords used a 272 CID (4.5 L) version with 162 hp (121 kW), but the large 292 CID (4.8 L) unit from the Thunderbird was also offered, boasting 193 hp (144 kW).
Apart from the engine changes, customers were sure to notice the new Fairlane, which replaced the Crestline as the top trim level, while a new Crown Victoria-style featured a chrome "basket handle" across the familiar (and continued) "Victoria" hardtop roof, which originally appeared on the Mercury XM-800 concept car. This use of a styling feature to visually separate the front of the passenger compartment from the rear reappeared on the 1977-1979 Ford Thunderbird, the Ford Fairmont Futura and Mercury Zephyr Z-7 coupes. The company now boasted three different rooflines, the tall two-pillar Mainline, Customline, and Fairlane, lower chrome-pillar Crown Victoria, and pillarless hardtop Victoria. The "Skyliner" acrylic glass roof was still offered, this time only on the Crown Victoria model. New brakes were used 11-inch (280 mm) drums. Also, Fords had a new frame with five cross members.
The Fords introduced for 1955 also featured the panoramic windshields found on Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Cadillacs the previous year. With this panoramic windshield the A-pillars have a vertical angle. this gives the driver more panoramic visibility.
For the first time, Ford offered seat belts as a dealer option (not factory installed, with instructions provided by a Service Bulletin). Also new for 1955 was Ford's first factory installed air conditioner. This "Select Aire" option featured an integrated heater core and evaporator coil unit within the dash and cold air discharge vents located on top of the dash on either side of the radio speaker. The "Select Aire" design was carried over to the 1956 models with slightly different cold air vents in the same location as on the 1955 models. The condenser was mounted in front of the radiator as in later cars.
Station wagons were offered as a separate series for the first time in 1955. The Ranch Wagon and Custom Ranch Wagon were 2 door wagons whilst the Country Sedan and Country Squire models were 4 doors wagons, the latter featuring wooden appliqué side mouldings.

1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria BluWht
One of my favorite cars! 272 c.i. overhead valve Y block V8. Ford had lots of two tone combinations this year..so different from previous years! This car has Fordomatic along with power steering. Not only is the exterior fashionable, but the interior is beautiful too! This car brought luxury to the low priced field!
1955 Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria SeaspriteGrnSnowshoeWhtMull031012
Beautiful car..and it has air conditioning! I must admit it is the first 1955 Ford I've seen with it. That 272 c.i. V8 with overdrive is a great way to travel with power and economy! If it were mine, I'd be taking it for a drive right now! The color combinations offered in 1955 and 56 were truly fantastic at Ford.
